Cris Hedges: America IS Entering It's Final Phase
#1
A great presentation by one of the best writers and journalists around.

I, and others here, have been bleating on about the forthcoming end of the American Empire for many years - and particularly as a consequence of the forthcoming collapse of the US dollar as the world's reserve currency (already happening btw) - that Hedges also addresses.

With the US Fed unable to repatriate foreign owned dollars back to the US to service the ever growing national debt ($21 trillion and growing rapidly), the US will be forced to repudiate its debts that are no longer able to be serviced. That will spell the end of the Pentagon as a major force in the world.

It's only a matter of time and when it comes it's likely to come very fast. Personally, I can't wait. The world needs a period without permanent war and strife.

The shadow is a moral problem that challenges the whole ego-personality, for no one can become conscious of the shadow without considerable moral effort. To become conscious of it involves recognizing the dark aspects of the personality as present and real. This act is the essential condition for any kind of self-knowledge.
Carl Jung - Aion (1951). CW 9, Part II: P.14
